The world in which children grow up today is very different from the one I remember as a child. I was born in the 1980s, not long ago. However, with the speed with which technology evolves in the present time, many changes have occurred.
When I was in elementary school, I played with action figures, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Disney characters. There was also the Pogs craze and, of course, the Ty Beanie Babies. I remember our first computer, it ran on MS-DOS and the games we played were on floppy disks. I also remember a time without the Internet. And also a time when AOL was the most popular internet service provider.
Most of my free time as a child was spent outdoors, weather permitting. I played with chalk, rode a bicycle, and participated in outdoor games with nearby children. My friends and I went for walks and found alternative ways to occupy our time that didn’t include an electronic device.
My friends and I made three-way calls with cordless phones which were twice as many as phones made today. Also, my first cell phone, which was even before cell phone production, had a greyish-green screen with black lettering and a four-inch retractable antenna.
Children growing up in today’s world have been exposed to a very different world. They have always lived in a world with the Internet, computers, and other devices that are used on a daily basis. Their hobbies are also diverse and include playing video games, browsing the Internet, and watching YouTube. Children even get smartphones, sometimes as early as elementary school.
Sure there are still a lot of similarities, like playing with dolls, Legos and cars, but there are also a lot of differences. While I believe that technological advances have been great for the economy and for improving the efficiency of our lives along with the world we live in, I also see some drawbacks. I think some important things are missing in children’s lives today, including exposure to different forms of art and music. I also think that communicating electronically so frequently hinders social skills. But regardless of my opinion, this is our world and after only living in it for 25 years, I can already see tremendous progress in society. It will be interesting to see what children growing up think about this topic now when they reach 25 years of age.
